EAPs offer employers practical and effective strategies to improve their bottom line by paying attention to their employee’s well-being. One of the main values of an EAP is the ability to deliver early intervention and timely resolutions to reduce the range of operational and healthcare costs.

A Portland State University study found that employees who received assistance for emotional problems experienced:

drop in average length of hospital stays 77.9%
drop in the frequency of hospitalizations 66.7%
drop in the number of prescriptions used 48.6%
drop in physician office visits 47.1%
drop in emergency room visits 45.3%

A Hartford study concluded that behavioral and physical issues cannot be viewed in isolation. When they occur together, they can contribute to one another’s severity. (EA Report 2009)

“An EAP that is aligned with organizational values and vision will measurably enhance business operations, the overall employee experience and the community perceptions of the company. A well run EAP will provide a positive return on investment.” (National Business Group on Health, EAP Workgroup, 2007)

According to Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA), EAPs reduce absenteeism, lost time, errors, dissatisfied customers, accidents and medical claims. They improve production, morale, employee retention, and public image. EAPs save money on salary and fringe benefits recruiting and training costs. (EAPA Online 2002)

EAPA’s research shows that up to 68% of all workers will at some time experience problems severe enough to prevent them from coping with day-to-day work responsibilities. (EAPA Online 2002)
